Fresh off the press: Cigar Aficionado 10 Best Cigars of the year for 2014 just named Oliva Serie V Melanio the No.1 cigar of the year! Here's what the editors of CA magazine had to say about the Oliva Serie V Melanio:

"One look at the sharply pressed corners and carefully curved head and foot of the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado tells you this is no ordinary cigar. The Nicaraguan smoke represents the pinnacle of achievement for Oliva Cigar Co. The Oliva Cigar story began in the late 1800s, when Melanio Oliva started growing cigar tobacco in Cuba. His heirs carried on the family tradition in the fields, but it was his grandson...


The new Oliva Serie V Melanio line was created in tribute to the founding father of the Oliva tobacco empire, Don Melanio Oliva, who started growing tobacco in Cuba about 150 years ago. His grandson, Gilberto Oliva was the one to move the family tobacco enterprise out of Cuba after the Castro regime nationalized the cigar industry in the wake of the revolution. Introduced at the 2012 IPCPR, the Oliva V Melanio cigar is a celebration of the founding father’s life and takes the already world famous Oliva Serie V line to a whole new level. Like all Oliva Serie V cigars, the Melanio is medium-to-full bodied however, the Oliva Serie V Melanio line features an Ecuadorian Sumatra seed wrapper not seen on an Oliva cigar since the Masterblends II line and utilizes a Nicaraguan binder and all Nicaraguan filler blend. With sweet cocoa, nutty flavors, spiced up with peppery notes, the Melanio line is complex but amazingly balanced, with a long, smooth finish. Cigar experts predict that the Oliva Serie V Melanio will become the new pace setter for the entire brand and a magnet for real cigar lovers.

This is what Cigar Aficionado had to say about the #1 Cigar of 2014:

"One look at the sharply pressed corners and carefully curved head and foot of the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado tells you this is no ordinary cigar. The Nicaraguan smoke represents the pinnacle of achievement for Oliva Cigar Co. The Oliva Cigar story began in the late 1800s, when Melanio Oliva started growing cigar tobacco in Cuba. His heirs carried on the family tradition in the fields, but it was his grandson Gilberto Oliva Sr. who began making cigars.
As with so many cigar stories, Gilberto Oliva Sr. faced a difficult road. He left his native Cuba in 1964, and eventually started working for the Plasencia family in Honduras. In 1995 he and his son Gilberto Jr. created a cigar within Plasencia’s factory called Gilberto Oliva. A year later, they set out to open a factory of their own, and shortened their brand name to Oliva.
Business was tough in those days, and Oliva struggled. Faced with dwindling reserves of cash, in a cost-cutting move they turned to Gilberto Sr.’s robust stocks of Nicaraguan tobacco, which changed the flavor profile of Oliva cigars at a time when the interest in Nicaraguan flavor was increasing.
Nicaraguan tobacco helped Oliva survive. The cigar that brought it to the attention of connoisseurs debuted in 2006: Oliva Serie V. Made by a small group of rollers and blended for strength and style, the Serie V line was an immediate hit. In 2012, to pay tribute to the first man in the family to grow cigar tobacco, Oliva added the Melanio version, which is distinguished from the original by its Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. The Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations. It’s a classic smoke. Oliva’s cigars have appeared on our Top 25 list nine times in a row. This is the first time the company has been named Cigar of the Year."  Credit: Cigar Aficionado Magazine
